    I cannot WAIT to have my wedding at the International Banquet Center in the Atheneum hotel and Suites! We have booked it for our wedding next year and they have been nothing but accommodating and responsive. Sophie has surely taken care of us already! She has gone out of her way to meet with us 3 times before we booked, and even made sure we could see it when it was set up for a wedding! She was helping put everything together for the bride that evening and still made me feel like we had her full attention for the short time we were there. I can't wait for this beautiful space accompanied by such a great, attentive staff.

    Sophie and her staff are fantastic! Super organized and very professional! Throughout the whole planning process they made us feel like royalty. This led into our wedding night with the staff continuing to make sure we were happy and our drinks were filled. Everyone was very helpful when bringing in items for the wedding as packing up everything at the end of the night! Thank you for making our wedding perfect!

    My husband and I were blown away by how beautiful this venue was! The two story room was perfect for our ~230 guests. It included a cocktail hour on the balcony and the guests watched our first dance from upstairs which made for some awesome pictures!

    There were so many amazing aspects of this venue that it's hard to even list them all! The city views from the venue are incredible, the space is very flexible and open, the food is delicious, the dessert bar was AMAZING (our guests loved it), the rooftop for evening photos was fun and unique and the staff was incredibly responsive and helpful.

    As a bride, you always want to be able to get in contact with your vendors. Sophie was always very responsive - even if it was a late night reply to my email to say she'd get back with me in the morning. Any changes I wanted for the evening she was very accommodating. The venue also provides you a wonderful setting to taste test the food with your fiance and up to 4 additional guests (our parents loved it).

    During the actual wedding, the staff continued the great customer service! Derrick was there with us the entire night and was absolutely amazing!! He made sure we had everything we needed and helped us take advantage of all the great perks of the venue like the rooftop photos. Emanuel served the bridal party at the captain's table and he did a fantastic job! He was super attentive, quick to get us anything we needed and had such a positive attitude!

    Another huge bonus is that the venue is attached to the Atheneum Hotel - which provided free valet for our guests and a discounted hotel rate. I was able to check into the hotel a few days before the wedding and it eliminated a lot of stress.

    Overall, we are so glad we made the choice to have our reception at the IBC. It was on the expensive side compared to a few other venues (but not the most expensive option in Detroit) but it was 110% worth every penny! Thank you to Sophie, Derrick and their team!
